Here’s what we know about harness racing — almost nothing. But we do know this, they don’t use the paddock. The horses and sulkies come to the track ready to race from the receiving barn. If this looks likes the paddock at Colonial Downs, it is! Subsequently, Colonials Downs is utilizing the space for patrons…a paddock party.

“Every Saturday in October will feature Paddock Parties, which take place trackside in the thoroughbred “walking ring” paddock area. The parties feature live music, in-paddock betting windows, an outdoor barbecue and plenty of umbrella tables to enjoy the races. “

Well, it is a nice spot!
